Christel House South Africa, a non-profit school in Ottery, announced its new board chair, Ian Russell.

He is a long-standing member of Christel House, a best-selling author and a global speaker with more than 25 years’ experience of leading and strengthening large organisations around the world.

Russell said he is delighted, honoured and immensely humbled to be asked to chair the Christel House South Africa Board.

“The school has made the most incredible impact on the local community over the years and I am looking forward to helping support the management of the school in driving even greater success in the future,” Russell said in a statement.

The school also welcomed three new additional board members.

They are Advocate Derrick Petersen, legal and human resources specialist; Baba Mogase, business and marketing specialist and Professor Linda Ronnie, education and transformative education specialist.

Christel House has also expressed its gratitude towards Steve Ross, the previous chair of Edcon, for his eight years at Christel House, seven of which were as chair.

His contribution to the school has been immense and his focused involvement and leadership significantly impacted the organisation’s strategic direction and improved sustainability.

Ross, who will remain on the board, said it has been his a privilege to serve the wonderful children of Christel House and a further honour to work with such a talented, committed and compassionate team.

“We are very fortunate to have excellence and commitment in every part of our faculty and senior team,” said Ross.
